ometimes it’s hard to feed people, teach children Jewish values and provide home healthcare to Holocaust survivors all at once. It’s especially challenging, too, if you want to rescue a baby from poverty,

speak out against anti-Semitism, or rebuild a home destroyed by missiles. How can you do so much good with just one gift? That’s where the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County comes in…

Denise lost her job in 2009 when the local restaurant she was working at closed. At the same time her husband, who owned his own painting business, was no longer getting work due to the changing economy. With six children, they were struggling to get by. The family was eating pasta and cereal for dinner almost every night, until Denise’s mother told her about Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service. They qualified for food deliveries through the Forster Family Kosher Food Pantry. “We were able to access food and counseling services to help us get through the worst period in our lives. Thankfully, both my husband and I are working again, but we will never forget the help we received during our greatest time of need. I thank everyone who makes it possible.�

Sam is 87, survived the Holocaust, lives in Delray Beach and volunteers at the local kosher food pantry. He recently participated in the March of the Living (MOL) as a mentor and inspiration to 48 local high school students. Sam marched right along with them — and 8,000 students from around the world — through the concentration camps of Poland, providing firsthand knowledge and evidence of the wondrous resilience of the Jewish spirit. The group then flew to Israel to celebrate Independence Day in the streets of Jerusalem. Sam says that MOL is one of the most impactful programs offered for young Jews today. “So many have told me that it has changed their lives forever — made them a better Jew and a better person.” Our Federation provides resources and support for MOL locally through the Department of Jewish Education.

When you give to our Federation, you take a sTAND against terrorism. Not far from the turbulent Gaza border where thousands of missiles fell several years ago, you will find a new World ORT “Smart� School in construction with 1,200 students and a waiting list of 150. Some missiles still strike, but despite it all, these students are thriving in a state-of-the-art environment with an inspired curriculum infused with Jewish values. Students such as Miera refuse to live in fear. They say they are learning not to focus on the hatred, but instead, on their bright future. World ORT schools are supported by our Federation through the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) as well as by the Jewish Agency For Israel (JAFI).

HOPE everywhere.

Fourteen-year-old Sasha lives in Russia and is the only child of a single mother. He suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Unable to walk or speak, doctors held little hope for his development. Thanks to programs available through the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and the Jewish Agency For Israel (JAFI), Sasha and his family now receive vital services including physical therapy, speech therapy, psychological consultations, social opportunities at the Hesed Chama Family Club and Jewish camping experiences. Sasha is now making great strides and is able to communicate and move in ways he never thought possible. Sasha and his family say that it’s “deeply touching to know that people around the world care enough to support these programs.”

So many lives touched. So many more to help. • Services in our community continue to be reduced for adults with chronic mental illness and to children with special needs due to a decrease in funding.

• Many local children (whose families have demonstrated a qualified financial need) will forego a Jewish day school education because they cannot afford it.

• Basic needs such as transportation, medical supplies and assistance, and food deliveries are still not fully met for local Holocaust survivors and families in need.

• Hundreds of young adults from South Palm Beach County who wish to go on Birthright Israel are waitlisted due to a gap in financial aid.

• Thousands of frail elderly residents and children with special needs in the Former Soviet Union continue to live in dire need of humanitarian aid.
